On Saturday 19 December 1981, the Penlee lifeboat ‘Solomon Browne’, was launched in hurricane conditions to go to the aid of the coaster ‘Union Star’ which was being swept towards the southern coast of Cornwall.
It’s one of the most humbling, awe inspiring stories of ordinary people being thrust into unimaginable conditions and risking everything to save others.
The production is presented by Original Theatre Company (the team behind Birdsong Online and Apollo 13: The Dark Side of The Moon) in association with Martyn Hayes.
Venue: Net Loft Cinema
Date: Saturday 24th September & Wednesday 28th September
